“Fabulous”
Reviewed 16 January 2013

Huge atmospheric ancient place.Worth visitng to breath in the history and roam the old corridors checking out the titbits of history scattered all over the place.If you get someone to show you around its much better.Its more a specialty attraction if you like churches and history.Take a moment and sit an just drink in the atmosphere and have a wander as there are other small nooks and crannies.

“It was fine...”
Reviewed 22 March 2012

Visit if you are in the area. Its located some 10 KMs from Margao. A place to see if you are staying near Colva. Can be passed if you are in North Goa or farther.

“Serenity”
Reviewed 15 February 2012

This place is a little treasure- but it really depends on what you are looking for. You get a taste of the quiet life and the seminary sometimes have a feni brew (from what I remember) Its a lovely little place and a scenic green route to get there

“Seminary for Priesthood”
Reviewed 12 November 2011

This is one of the places where you can find the origin of Christianity in Goa, India.
Historical, having museum and underground tunnels is a must to watch along with the underground water tank which has dangerous looking stairs.
